I went under the assumption that this was a free range/refuge type of thing. If you're the type of person who cares about animals and their quality of life, don't spend your money here. They have alligators in extremely small habitats, same with the giraffes....More

We went to the zoo for a 1st grade school field trip, so you might want to avoid a weekday if you go with a small/family group! There was at least one another school but they accommodated everyone really well in a relatively small space....More

It's too expensive for what it is. There are many herbivores which are free to roam quite a lot of land. Lots of the deer, zebra, bison etc... Stay together which is what it's like in Africa, so I enjoyed that part. You get taken...More
